About Me

I have been in the Travel Industry for more than 13 years and am a LGBT lifestyle specialist, a Disney specialist, Certified Sandals and Beaches Specialist, and Holland America Specialist. My passion in travel is to learn about the history and culture of each place I visit to better understand the people who live there.

Tommie Louvre in ParisMy Favorite Trip

Europe – Insight Tour to Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, and France. The people and the cultures were truly an unforgettable experience and my itinerary offered a little taste of each country. I experienced the breathtaking views in the Alps, marveled at the great masters work inside the Louvre, enjoyed wonderful wines everywhere, stayed in wonderful hotels, slowly sailed down the Rhine River, and toured the Black Forest Kuckoo Clock Factory, which is the only place you can buy an original Kuckoo Clock.

My Favorite Destination

Switzerland is by far my favorite country, outside the United States. The lovely city of Lucerne is in the middle of Swiss Alps. The restaurants and relaxed atmosphere of the local people was perfect for my vacation expectations. The views are simply stunning with snow capped mountains as far as the eye can see. If this is not on your "must see" list, you will miss a truly spectacular destination.

My Travel Tips

"When traveling to Europe don’t carry all your money and credit cards in one place. Put some money and a credit card in at least two separate places on your person. "

"When traveling to Switzerland you must transfer your cash into Swiss Francs. They will not accept Euros or US dollars. I always recommend exchanging your cash to the local currency to avoid unhappy shop owners. Don't forget to download the XE.com app from the app store as you will find it priceless when traveling abroad!"

"Don't forget when traveling outside the USA, you must have an electric power converter for your laptops, cell phones, and tablets. Most countries have different electric outlets than we do and global converters are available in most electronic stores."

My Interests

I enjoy traveling, of course! I also enjoy reading, cooking and baking, as well as studying history.

Altered Houses


Prior to visiting Amsterdam I heard many interesting things about this place, but never much about its unique, crooked architecture. Read More
